Jason Garrett won’t be getting a contract extension from the Dallas Cowboys, and will essentially be coaching for his job in 2019.

There has been a ton of speculation about whether or not owner Jerry Jones would be extending Garrett, and reports have been all over the place. Well, we now know for sure he won’t be getting one.

“We have been there before without a contract. He trusts me. I do trust him or he wouldn’t be the head coach to begin with. Our business is made too much of when you look at extensions and non extensions,” the Cowboys owner explained at the NFL Honors program Saturday night, according to the Star-Telegram(RELATED: Patriots Beat The Rams In The Super Bowl)

Well, there you have it. Garrett is either going to put up results in 2019 or he’ll probably be looking for a new job. The only reason to not extend a coach is if you’re seriously considering getting rid of him.

The fact he’s not getting an extension with only a year left should tell you everything that you need to know.

The Cowboys have all the pieces they need to win, and there’s really no excuse for it to not happen. They’ve got Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper.

That’s an embarrassment of riches on the offensive side of the ball. If you can’t put up a ton of points with those three, then you’re doing it wrong.

It should be fun seeing how Garrett fights for his job in 2019.
